    A boy was suspended from school for kissing a girl on the cheek. The girl apparently, did not object.

    A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from a Colorado school for kissing a girl on the cheek.

    School officials in Canon City are accusing the boy of sexual harassment and they want it on his school record.

    The boy's mother tells KRDO-TV her son was suspended once before for kissing the girl and had disciplinary problems, but the girl did not object to being kissed.

    A School District RE-1 official says the repeat offenses meet the school policy definition of sexual harassment and they hope the tough standards will force the boy to change his behavior.
